Earthworks of curvilinear banks and ditches, between 3-7m wide and northwest to southeast and northeast to southwest aligned, are visible on visualisations derived from lidar data captured in 2004 and 2013.
The earthworks largely correspond with field boundaries depicted on the mid-19th century Parish Tithe Map which shows the northern part of this area as comprising an orchard. The remaining earthworks are not shown on this map, or on later available historic maps and had evidently passed out of use by this time.
The field boundaries define several rectilinear infields and a possible trackway and are interpreted as being of medieval or post-medieval date.
